My name is David Hood from Rancho Cucamonga, California. I graduated in June 2012 from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with a Bachelor of Science degree in geography with a geographic information systems concentration, and I graduated from Citrus Community College with an Associate of Science degree in Biological & Physical Sciences as well as receiving a certiﬁcate of achievement in Forestry.
For the last 2 years I have been working as a freelance photographer covering sports in the southern California ranging from the high school level to collegiate and professional sports. I have covered the California state high school football championships for 3 years, and have covered playoff games for the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Kings, several college football bowl games including the 2012 and 2013 Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, CA.
In my off time I have explored the southern Utah and northern Arizona areas such as Bryce Canyon National Park, zebra slot in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Zion National Park, Coyote Buttes North with a visit to “The Wave” and Buckskin Gulch and to Lower Antelope slot canyon in Page, Arizona working on my landscape photography.
